Do I need to apply for planning permission?
Not all work will require planning permission. You can check the Planning Portal to see what does and doesn't need planning permission. If your property is a listed building you must also apply for listed building consent. Planning permission may also be needed if your property lies within a conservation area.
Check if you need planning permission or building regulation approval.

What to do if you don't need planning permission
You can apply for a certificate which is a legally binding document that protects all parties and can be relied upon when conducting property searches. There are 2 types of certificates:
Lawful Development Certificate (proposed) - confirms whether or not your proposal requires planning permission.
Lawful Development Certificate (existing) - confirms whether or not planning permission was required for work which has taken place.
